My dh's grandfather was a horticulter prof. at the U of MI years ago and had his own little orchard and bees. Dh has fond memories of the "honey room" in grandpa's house, and we've thought of doing some of this ourselves.

Does anyone in the village currently do this? Can you direct me to some websites or resources on the subject?

Thanks!

The people in the house behind us have just started keeping bees...... He has 11 boxes.. This really worries me, this is the middle of this small town. He has no fence around it to prevent children from disturbing the hives, their kids ride 4 wheelers and dirt bikes all around it and I've seen them come very close to hitting them...... I wonder what would happen to us or anyone nearby if these bees were mada angry.......:mad:

Lori, have you checked the by-laws to see if bees are allowed there.

We can't have bees in our small town, but there are a few farmers who have bee hives. Its something that I would have loved to do had we been on an acreage.

My dad has bees he has 8 boxes and that makes enough honey for them us and my brother and gifts and sell a little. I use the most since it is free that is what i like to use to bake and everything.

He got his first queen from online but I don't know which site but it is doable from on-line
